Usually I try to keep charity and crowdfunding as separate issues but sometimes the twain just meets. On this occasion the two things are thrust together by virtue of the fact that George is walking all the way around Sussex and, given that I live in the east part of the county, it seems only right and proper to lend my support. Add to that the fact that I consider The National Autistic Society to a be a particularly worthwhile cause and frankly I would seem like a bit of a grumpy pants if I didn’t make some effort to raise awareness of this event.
In recent years nothing that has appeared on my TV has made me laugh as much as “This is Jinsy“. The show is the work of Chris Bran and Justin Chubb and looks at life on the island of Jinsy; a magical place of folk tales, heroes, villains, tom-foolery and the unforgettable ballads from Melody Lane. I was therefore very pleased to hear that the Jinsy Boys have turned their attention to a book and are currently trying to raise funds to publish Dad Droid.
My faithful old Mac Pro was gradually getting slower and slower and unfortunately I do not possess the kind of cash required to get my hands on one of the cylindrical new Mac Pros. I did a bit of research on the Internet and discovered that my money would be better spent on a top-end iMac rather than a low spec. Mac Pro. Although this has nothing to do with crowdfunding, I am so impressed with my new toy that I felt the need to share the love with anyone who’ll listen. So I made a video of the iMac vs Mac Pro showdown.
